What Does A Commercial Cleaner Do?
A commercial cleaner is the general term for a person or company that provides cleaning services for businesses such as offices, shops, factories, bars and restaurants. Some commercial cleaning companies will also provide domestic cleaning services for homes. Cleaning services offered will vary but most commercial cleaners will have the equipment and staff available to carry out everything from dusting desks and emptying bins to industrial carpet cleaning and window cleaning.
5 Reasons Why You Should Contract A Commercial Cleaner
If you run a busy business it is unlikely you will have time to add cleaning to your list of tasks. Your staff will be employed for a specific purpose therefore they may not consider cleaning to be part of their job. Also, it may be more productive and make more financial sense to have your staff spending their time doing their professional job. A commercial cleaner will arrive at your business premises when contracted to do so and will carry out all the jobs in their contract. Cleaning will be done whether you are busy or not.
- Cleaning Equipment
The vast majority of businesses will have a sweeping brush, maybe a few dusters and some polish but if you employ a cleaning company they will arrive with everything they need to carry out their work. Depending on your premises and their contract this could include industrial carpet cleaning machines, water fed poles for cleaning high windows, and floor polishers.
A good commercial cleaning company will be insured to use their own equipment and to work on your premises. Are you staff insured to operate machinery?
A commercial cleaning company will have many trained cleaners, therefore will be able to complete your regular cleaning contract even during holiday periods and staff illness. If you leave this task to your own staff it is likely to get put to the bottom of the list of tasks when you are short-staffed during holiday periods or are very busy.
- Business Premises Cleanliness
Maintaining a clean place of work is important for many reasons. If your business is customer facing, it must be clean and fresh at all times, or it is unlikely that customers will return. Your staff also need to work in a clean environment. Not only are they likely to work harder but they are less likely to be off work sick if they are well looked after and work in a clean and tidy office.
Commercial Cleaner Services
A professional commercial cleaning company will want to visit your premises first to discuss your requirements and to see what they have to clean before agreeing on a cost. They will then draw up a bespoke contract for your business. When contracting a cleaner you need to think about everything you want them to do. Some businesses may request a weekly window clean and floor clean and do everything else themselves, and others will want a detailed cleaning schedule to be followed that includes tasks such as:-
- Clean windows (inside and outside)
- Clean all floors
- Remove rubbish from desk bins
- Dust all desks and reception surfaces
- Clean toilets and replenish towels and toilet rolls
- Clean fridge and microwave
- All carpets should be cleaned
Most commercial cleaning companies will also offer ad hoc services such as end of tenancy deep cleaning services, graffiti removal, after building works cleaning and gutter cleaning.
